Sustainability is essential to ensure a good quality of life for everyone without causing irreversible damage to the planet for future generations. This requires careful balancing of lifestyle, social equity and care for the environment.

The whole school community at Raynham Primary School are becoming increasingly aware of their responsibility to promote and practise sustainable development. As a school we have a special role to play in securing the future for young people; as a place of learning, we can help pupils understand our impact on the planet and through ‘leading by example’ are well placed to demonstrate sustainable living and working to pupils and the wider community alike.

At Raynham Primary School, we are keen to work towards improving our positive effects on the environment and reducing our adverse effects.

Community safety, unity and cohesion

We are very proud to be part of a culturally diverse community that enriches our life experiences, and we would love to continue to build strong links with the residents in our postcode, whilst continuing to positively influence the children we teach to become responsible local and global citizens.

However; the exponential increase in muggings, robberies and the evident presence of drugs on our streets, is resulting in creating a climate of fear for safety whilst walking and travelling. We feel that a coordinated effort involving the government, the local council, increased police presence and establishment of safer neighbourhood communities alongside of creating guardians of the communities acting as positive role models is required to ensure that effective measures are put in place so that we enable the perpetrators of these crimes to make more positive life choices whilst keeping our community safe.

We would love to get your support in helping us to raise awareness of the issues we, as a community, are facing. Please sign the letters we are sending to the Prime Minister as well as the local council, local MP and the police. Help us to make a difference. Thank you.

Please encourage our children to complete Enfield Air Quality Banner to raise awareness of the importance of making more sustainable choices that help to improve the quality of air where we live.
